Hi, I had my maths test yesterday I told you about. I think kt went really well. Thanks to your brilliant cgp books. I will let you know my level when it arrives, it will only be between a 5c and a 5a because I am doing a level 5 test paper, you have to get a 5a to do level 6. Just wanted to know what kind of questions are there in level 6 tests.
Also do you mind explaining this question to me: 2x+7=-3
Thank you! ;-)
sumaiyah — burton, United Kingdom — 29 Mar 2014 at 13:32:13
Guestbook Editor: Good news — hope you get the result you're looking for. The Level 6 test contains the same sort of questions, but with some new topics and new twists on your old favourites.
One of the new Level 6 topics is algebra, where letters like x and y start turning up in amongst the numbers. 2x + 7 = -3 is a classic bit of algebra. You'll learn all about it soon, so we don't want to confuse things by trying to explain in this small space. But you'll love it. Trust us.
Hi, I'd just like to say that I have tried some tests on the GCSE Science and I was disappointed that my score was altered by capital letters. simply by correctly using grammar in my answers, your website told me my answers weren't correct because it clearly hadn't recognised the correct answer for the reason that it had a capital letter in it. This is a default that needs to be fixed or students will be getting the wrong ideas about what the right answers are
Lucy — town, United Kingdom — 28 Mar 2014 at 10:26:44
Guestbook Editor: Thanks for pointing that out — definitely something we need to fix. Our finest web technicians are on the case as we speak...
Brilliant service! I order b4 5pm and it arrives the next day! Good job!

Thank you, I have got that book. the thing is that when I use that book for revision, when the test arrives I get a rubbish level. So I thought that the gcse one would explain in more detail, I find this book easier to undetstand with the tests at the end. Thank you for the tips on the exam they are much appreciated! :)
sumaiyah — burton, United Kingdom — 24 Mar 2014 at 16:05:58
Guestbook Editor: You're welcome — good luck!
I used your books for my GCSEs and now I am shopping for them myself! I think your books go to a childs level and way of thinking. Thank you

Hi, I have got a maths exam this friday coming up. I am in year 8 and I am using your gcse mathmatics foundation level revision guide. I am not very good at maths, do you think I am doing the right thing by challenging myself and also any tips for my upcoming exams I would really appreciate. Thank you!
sumaiyah — burton, United Kingdom — 22 Mar 2014 at 16:44:17
Guestbook Editor: Since you're in Year 8, there'll be a lot of topics in our GCSE books that you don't have to worry about yet, so you might be better off using one of our KS3 Maths books (like this one) whilst you're building up your confidence. It's probably best to ask your teacher about this — he/she will know a lot more about how you're progressing and what your style of learning is.
Exam tips: find out what you're being tested on, so you can concentrate on revising those topics. In the test, try to leave some time at the end to go back and check through your answers — in maths, it's really easy to lose marks because you've missed a minus sign or something. And if you're stuck on a question for more than a few minutes, move on and come back to it later if you can.
Love CGP! They are easy to Understand & Funny (unlike other silly books)
I'm looking forward for the all books my mum ordered to arrive here.
A bit of a wait ... but everything that's good is worth waiting for . :-)
Victoria — Concord, United States of America — 21 Mar 2014 at 15:25:48
Brilliant as always! I have been using CGP books with my students for years, from pre-school to A level. They are fun, engaging, comprehensive and easy to use. The service is outstanding and I wouldn't dream of using anyone else. JoJo
Jo Williams — Littlehampton, United Kingdom — 21 Mar 2014 at 12:57:34
Your website is so easy to use, just like your resources! All of those I've used (KS2 & 3) I've found invaluable for kids with learning difficulties.

(Commenting on book MQHW45, GCSE Maths AQA Workbook with online edition - Higher (A*-G Resits)
With the bearings I was not very happy as it doesn't always show best practice. It shows bearings written as two figures rather than the three it should do.
psmith — kirklington, United Kingdom — 18 Mar 2014 at 09:50:43
Guestbook Editor: Hello! We've had a look at this book and we think it's all OK... In the questions about bearings on page 90, some of the diagrams show angles written as two digits (e.g. 65° rather than 065°) — but these are 'ordinary' angles that are used to work out the bearings asked for in the question. In the Answer Book, the final bearings are always written as three digits.

the book is cheap and really useful for year 9 to 10 GCSE but i do recommend to buy the workbook aswell

Looking forward to receiving my book! Used CGP many times before and always had success. It's a nice sunny day here and I'm loving it.
Shelby — Wombourne, United Kingdom — 16 Mar 2014 at 14:00:46
Guestbook Editor: Ah, it's always sunny down south. (I realise that Wombourne is in the Midlands, but it's down south compared to us. We had steady drizzle yesterday.)
Hope you enjoy your book!
Thank you very much for all the excellent GCSE revision guides- have helped me a great deal with perfecting those topics that I just didn't get the first time around. Great work! :D
David — London, United Kingdom — 15 Mar 2014 at 15:56:07
As ever, completely blown away with your fantastic service and brilliant books. A question! Do you plan to produce a GCSE study guide for Wuthering Heights? I have students who would LOVE your help!
Ruth — Hickman, United Kingdom — 13 Mar 2014 at 10:10:42
Guestbook Editor: We'd love to offer your GCSE students some help, but we're not working on a Wuthering Heights Text Guide at the moment, as far as I'm aware. But it's a simple tale: boy meets girl, boy and girl grow up and fall in love, boy is rejected and humiliated due to his low standing in society, boy runs away to gain enough education and wealth to fuel his obsessive desire for revenge, boy returns and elopes with girl's sister-in-law... and then everyone lives happily ever after?
Thinking about it, it's possible that I never finished reading Wuthering Heights.
I'm rather annoyed that the book did not come with any instructions. I looked like a downright berk walking into class with nothing but the GCSE French book on.
Annoyed — London, United Kingdom — 08 Mar 2014 at 20:09:24
Guestbook Editor: Embarrassing. Excellent use of the term "downright berk", though. I'll be dropping that into as many coversations as possible in the coming weeks.
(Commenting on book E6G21, KS2 English SAT Buster - Grammar
This is really useful since it helps you make sense of all the grammar areas. I would recommend it to students who need practice before there SATS.

Hina gadhia — Mill hill, United Kingdom — 07 Mar 2014 at 19:30:24
Guestbook Editor: The CGP diet (according to recent Guestbook data): cake, pie and deep-fried Mars bars.
Wow! Ordered books at 4.45 yesterday afternoon, and the postman delivered them at lunch time today, how's that for a fab service!!
Pie for tea :)
Happy mum — Tiverton, United Kingdom — 07 Mar 2014 at 16:10:06
hello CGP people i love your beautifully created books makes knowledge flow through your brain like the river except that it stays there and doesnt flow through the other side.
unknown — under the sea, United Kingdom — 06 Mar 2014 at 21:01:36
Guestbook Editor: Beautifully put. When it comes to stopping the river of knowledge from flowing out of your brain, we give a dam.
im having pie for tea :3

This book claims to be relevant for 2014 onwards BUT the spec changes for 2015 exams!!! Edexcel no longer offer sections 1-3 for unit 1 and as the assessment changes I guess this is incorrect as well
Mrs L Baker — Romford, United Kingdom — 03 Mar 2014 at 11:50:22
Guestbook Editor: Don't worry — this book was fully updated for September 2013, so we made sure it was relevant for the current exams and the new exams that'll start in summer 2015. This is why it still includes Sections 1-3 for Unit 1.
For the topics that are part of both the 'old' and 'new' specifications, we've made sure that all the changes for the 2015 exams have been included. However, we weren't able to cover absolutely every option, so we've chosen the ones that are studied by the majority of students. (For example, option 3C from the new specification isn't currently included.)
This is all a slightly complicated way of saying that this book is suitable for all current Edexcel GCSE History A students — but it's worth checking the contents page to see exactly which options are covered.
